How do I tell him I want a Divorce?

We have grown apart, I know he has noticed. He will be home soon and I don't know how to tell him. We met and had a daughter real young. I feel like we are going down different paths now. With him being gone I know now what I want and what I don't want in a man. I want to start fresh and meet new people. Be happy again. But Still be friends with him for my daughters sake. I grew up in a divorced house hold and it was really tuff, my parents hated each other. Custody battles and all that. I don't want that for our child. His parents are still together so he doesn't know how it feels to have a divorced houshold in general. I just want a nice and easy divorce, and agree on a custody of my daughter that works for the both of us and be done with it. But how do I go about it? When is the right time? How much does it cost? What do I say?

  • Just sit him down and talk to him .You can do it yourself go to your local court house it's cheaper like that I did and I got a lot of fees waived.My brother in law is going through a divorce right now he was so unhappy but he is better off with out her she was horrible to him. It's better to be happy in your life than miserable.

  • I agree with the above poster, simply tell him how you feel. If you have trouble telling him you want a divorce because you don't want to hurt him then perhaps you feel more for him than you thought, but I am not you and it's not my relationship you must do what you feel is right.

  • Well not only is he my dh but my friend too. We have been together for 5 years, married one. My daughter is three. I would rather be his friend then his wife. That was what I ment by not wanting to hurt his feelings. It will bother me, but with all that we have been through I feel like divorce is my best option. I want us both to be happy, for each other and our child. I just don't want us to hate each other. It makes it ruff for the child. I know from my experiance with divorced parents who until recently hated each other.

  • Don't tell him if he is not in a good mood.He won't be so willing to do it peacefully.I'd tell him when the baby is asleep, incase you two get in an arguement.
